PRESS RELEASE 3 JUNE 2021

R&A AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY GOES BACK TO SCOTLAND

The magnificent silver trophy has spent the winter months in safe keeping at Lansdown Golf Club, having been presented to Joe Long last September following his victory at the 2020 R & A Amateur Championship.  Joe’s name has been added to the list of past winners engraved on the trophy’s base - including some famous names, such as Bobby Jones, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia. 

The huge trophy came out of its box one last time before being packed away for the journey back to Scotland in time for the 2021 Championships to be held at Nairn and Nairn Dunbar later this month – and eventual presentation to the new Champion.

Sadly, Joe won’t be in Scotland to defend his title as he is flying back to the US to compete in the US Open at Torrey Pines in California on the same weekend.   

Joe paid a flying visit to his home club last week to play a few holes and members took the chance to quiz him about his experiences competing in the US Masters at Augusta National in April and with the GB & I team at the 2021 Walker Cup in the USA earlier this month.  Joe had more exciting news to share  – he has been invited by Jack Nicklaus to play in the Memorial Tournament this weekend at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Ohio.
